If you’re someone who wants to study something that provides you with specialized skills, and sets you up for career success, then we have some unique programs for you.

Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technology

This program will teach you about energy systems used for commercial and industrial developments. You will learn how to apply engineering principles and conventions to gain optimal energy. Sounds like a mouthful! That’s why the program also offers an optional, paid 400-hour work placement. You get the best of both worlds: an opportunity to practice the skills you learn in a classroom and also make some extra money while still in school.

You’ll study engineering practices, refrigeration, gas code, hydronic systems, HVAC AutoCAD and graphics and much more.

Now, you must be wondering, what will I do after completing this advanced diploma? The answer to this million-dollar question is: you can work with building owners, energy management firms, school boards and even architects. Find out more about the program here.
